Nature has invented photoreceptor proteins that are involved in sensing and response to light in living organisms. Genetic code expansion (GCE) technology has provided new tools to transform light insensitive proteins into novel photoreceptor proteins. It is achieved by the site-specific incorporation of unnatural amino acids (Uaas) that carry light… CONTINUE READING
